Building on the earlier launch of our report in May, the Aldersgate Group hosted the official launch of the 'An Economy That Works' coalition.
This coalition of businesses and civil society organisations believes that to have a truly successful economy, we need to redefine its purpose and ensure that economic policy also aims to deliver positive environmental and social impacts. The coalition aims to support the government in developing policies that can drive better growth, beyond just GDP and deliver greater sustainability, resilience, prosperity and competitiveness.
Speakers discussed why we need to redefine the purpose of the economy, its importance to the business community and highlight some policy ideas that can help realise an economy that works.
Thank you to Simmons and Simmons for hosting.
